Subject: [xxx] sit-lie defeated in Berkeley

Hi

Last nite Berkeley Measure S which effectively criminalizes sitting on the street and/or forces people into "treatment" was narrowly defeated - 51.5% [final tally was 52.3%] voted no.

The Berkeley/Oakland Homeless Action Center and client/survivor activists and our friends fought a long hard fight and overcame in the end a "treatment" process whereby the Chamber of Commerce and their supporters paid the homeless to pass out "Yes on S" literature.

This time the "pellet pushers" were the recipients of the psychological disconnect.
